I know it's very easy to engage City of Platinum, but I say to ignore him he's a very spiteful being and I say we let his spite unravel him. On that note any one have any demo pics or Otie renderings?

take a good look at the past, most of it's gone now. But a bright future is ahead.

I wonder how much the design will change when it's finally released, if at all.

I'm super excited in any case.

What is the tall rectangular shaped building on the left of the picture? It has the 3 "church windows" at the top of it.

So many gems in the old NY pic. Pity they are overshadowed by taller and bigger buildings today. I guess that's the price you have to pay when building supertalls ...

One Grand Central Place, aka the Lincoln Building.

Oh yes, I remember seeing that building many times. It looks like a monster compared to its surroundings in the vintage shot.

I am SOOOOOO unsure about this building ahrgrhhhrg. I'm always for new additions to the NYC skyline and i feel like midtown can only be enriched with a new 21st century building but something just doesn't feel right with this building. :/ I've been loving the recent slender building craze going on in NYC and i really think that slender buildings are the way of the future. Buuuuuuut I just feel like this building is just... chunky i guess. It's just sooooooo out there and i feel like it oppresses all the buildings around it just like the metlife did. What especially annoys me is the fact that i feel it squashes the chrysler building on the side. Does anyone agree? What's your opinion?

I like it. I'm nervous about the overall size, because the Empire State is so dominating now, but this will make it blend in a bit

One Vanderbilt is expected to get the green light
http://nypost.com/2015/05/26/one-van...e-green-light/

Quote:
Here comes One Vanderbilt!

It took 18 months of rugged negotiations, but on Wednesday the City Council is expected to overwhelmingly green-light Vanderbilt Avenue rezoning — allowing much larger new buildings to rise in the five-block corridor between East 42nd and 47th streets.

The breakthrough immediately gets SL Green’s mighty One Vanderbilt next to Grand Central Terminal out of the ground. The $1 billion-plus, 1,501-foot-tall skyscraper will have 1.6 million square feet of office space, of which TD Bank plans to lease about 200,000 square feet. The technical-sounding rezoning will double permissible floor-area ratio (FAR) from 15 to 30.

If the Council votes as expected — nothing’s ever certain — it would mark the first step toward revitalizing East Midtown, a district fabled as Manhattan’s commercial heart but hobbled by obsolescent buildings averaging 70 years old.

Under current zoning, most of them can’t be replaced even by new ones of the same size. Hudson Yards, the World Trade Center and Midtown South have been cleaning East Midtown’s clock in luring major tenants to new, state-of-the-art buildings.

Prospects for the district seemed dim after a much larger-scale rezoning pushed by former Mayor Michael Bloomberg died in his administration’s final months. But Mayor de Blasio, who’s turning out not to be as development-averse as his detractors feared and his left-leaning backers expected, apparently saw the need to get the ball rolling.

The council vote also opens the door to future large projects on Vanderbilt Avenue, but they’re anything but automatic. In a departure from previous rezonings, no developer can exploit the size bonus without providing public improvements to which the city must agree, in addition to buying air rights.


To receive a “special permit” for One Vanderbilt, SL Green is spending $220 million on public amenities for the tower, its surrounding sidewalks and new interior connections to the terminal.

One Vanderbilt is subsidy-free. In fact, SL Green won’t be able to fill floors above the current zoning limit without first delivering all of the pledged amenities.

They now include a grander public entrance on 42nd Street than in the original design, achieved by reducing the amount of retail frontage.

The Vanderbilt breakthrough is expected to be the first of numerous rezoning initiatives for East Midtown proposed by Planning Commissioner Carl Weisbrod. Other key players in the Vanderbilt rezoning include SL Green CEO Marc Holliday, Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and Council member Dan Garodnick.

Holliday said in a statement, “One Vanderbilt will usher in a new era for East Midtown with critically needed state-of-the-art office space and a dramatic upgrade to Grand Central’s transit infrastructure.”
